    Yan designated, Bergolla sent down, Belisle on the DL

    To make room on the roster for RHP Gary Majewski, LHP Bill Bray and SS Royce Clayton, the Reds today designated for assignment RHP Esteban Yan, optioned to Louisville IF William Bergolla and placed RHP Matt Belisle on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 10, with a strained lower back.

    Additionally, today the Reds claimed off waivers from the Nationals and optioned to Louisville OF Brandon Watson.

    Watson started the season with the Nationals and appeared in 9 games…on 4/13 he was optioned to Class AAA New Orleans, where in 21 games he hit .305 with 11 runs, 13 RBI and 2 stolen bases…from 5/27-7/9 he was on New Orleans’ disabled list with a dislocated left shoulder.

    Watson has 165 stolen bases in 8 minor league seasons. He is the godson of 2-time National League All-Star and Reds Hall of Famer OF Eric Davis.

    my thoughts exactly, I guess the thinking is that you know what you get with Yan which is mediocre while Standridge could actually improve especially after last night.

    Watson was an excellent pickup!

    Yan and Bergolla are no surprise, Belisle's back is going to be a problem for years to come.

    Minor league fodder.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Do the Reds have to trade the Nationals a player for Watson?

    Doubt it. They'll probably drop a position player to get back to 12 pitchers.

    Wise would be the only option I guess.

    Do the Reds know that there are other teams in baseball than the Nationals? And do they know that the Nationals aren't really regarded as an A+ organization?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    He is simply picked up to replace Denorfia in Louisville. If they don't make the playoffs, maybe he'll be a pinch run specialist in Sept.
    Matta = Really good

    How about Ross to DL and trade LaRue when Ross comes back?
